What does this system offer that would compel a user to "upgrade"?
How about an initial commercial and then 1 per 15 minutes of video content viewed.
My guess is the editors have so many stories to choose from, they've got some keyword filters set up and pick out of that lot. That would explain why there are so many stories along the same lines, which gets kind of repetitive.
ssh user@hostname -i $0
The $0 (dollar-zero) expands to the name of your script (including path) so you don't need to be in the same directory. Now add $HOME/.ssh to your PATH and you can run it from anywhere.
Not sure what the number means yet, but I'm going to find out!
Fun times, when it took so little to feel like a hacker.
Obligatory printer beatdown
This is my personal data and it is starting to become unbelievably unruly to deal with as far as data integrity and security are concerned.
Keep all your important files in a version control system. Personally, I use Perforce (it's free for 2 users or less). That gives you: multi-revision history and checkin comments, an easy way to pull a subset of files to any computer in your house, and peace of mind that you don't need to worry about kids deleting anything important as it's all stored on the server with history. Also easy to see what has changed on any computer and check those files in. And there's a big win for data integrity checks: Perforce stores the checksum of all files (and revisions) and can easily check that every file still matches the checksum in the central database. If you have any disk corruption, you'll know about it when you run 'p4 verify -q
On top of this, I use rsync to copy the server data onto backup drives. I'm also looking at storing backups online, but haven't taken that step yet.
I've been using this system for years and I couldn't imagine being without it. It's so easy to find and retrieve exactly what I want - my resume 5 revisions ago, my tax return, photos from 2003. Even without that, the data integrity checks give a lot of peace of mind.
